Goals, hopes, and dreams are part of every client portfolio. Holistic advice can help make them happen.
Holistic financial advice isn’t about beating generic benchmarks.
It’s about using your knowledge and skill to help clients meet a
lifetime of goals and creating client relationships that can fuel your
practice over the long term.

What Advisors Think
“So many advisors would take this pile of money and immediately just try to figure out how to invest it. But when an advisor wants to provide holistic financial planning services, as I do, there’s much more to it than that.”

“Technology lets us show clients how they can use their financial resources to reach their goals and, just as importantly, lets us present the plan in a way that’s straightforward and understandable to them.”
“The various modeling capabilities we use with our planning tool enable us to offer clients more than the simple answer to the question of ‘When can I retire?’ Instead, we’re able to drill down for other significant goals, such as funding healthcare expenses in retirement, enabling travel or replacing a primary residence, or optimizing Social Security choices.”
